Mission Statement

Our mission is to offer long-term ecological solutions to stimulate struggling economies in areas of developing countries recovering from disaster.

Description

A FEW OF OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

  • Participation in recovery and livelihood enhancement projects more effectually invests people in their own long-term recuperation.
  • Creating innovative solutions by synthesizing traditional and scientific knowledge must include affected community members in every step: needs assessment, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
  • Improvements to initiatives must be cyclical and based on evaluation by community participants and technical supporters.
  • Indices of success and effectiveness include eventually handing over every element of a project to local constituents.
  • Empower individuals and communities with skills and knowledge rather than handouts and charity.
  • Sustainability must balance social, economic and ecological elements, AKA, the triple bottom-line.
  • We currently have ongoing initiatives in Sri Lanka and Haiti.
